Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! It was created by Tynga’s review.

Paperback
Asking for it by Louise O’Neill

In a small town, where everyone knows everyone, Emma O’Donovan is different. She is the special one – beautiful, popular, powerful. And she works hard to keep it that way.
Until that night…
Now, she’s an embarrassment. Now, she is a slut. Now, she is nothing.
And those pictures – those pictures that everyone has seen – mean she can never forget.

 

 

 

Fairy Loot
Beyond the darkened shore by Jessica Leake

The ancient land of Éirinn is mired in war. Ciara, Princess of Mide, has never known a time when Éirinn’s kingdoms were not battling for power, or Northmen were not plundering their shores.

The people of Mide have thankfully always been safe because of Ciara’s unearthly ability to control her enemies’ minds and actions. But lately, a mysterious crow has been appearing to Ciara, whispering warnings of an even darker threat. Although her clansmen dismiss her visions as pagan nonsense, Ciara fears this coming evil will destroy not just Éirinn, but the entire world.

Then the crow leads Ciara to Leif, a young Northman leader. Leif should be Ciara’s enemy, but when Ciara discovers that he, too, shares her prophetic visions, she knows he’s something more. Leif is mounting an impressive army, and with Ciara’s strength in battle the two might have a chance to save their world.

With evil rising around them, they’ll do what it takes to defend the land they love…even if it means making the greatest sacrifice of all.

L A LE POUVOIR D’INVOQUER DES DÉMONS.
IL VA CHANGER LA FACE D’UN EMPIRE.

Orphelin, Fletcher imagine déjà son avenir tout tracé : une vie dure mais paisible comme forgeron dans un village sans histoire… Jusqu’au jour où il se découvre un talent rare, un talent bien particulier : celui d’invoquer les démons.

Accusé d’un crime qu’il n’a pas commis, Fletcher trouve refuge à l’Académie Vocans, sous l’aile du mystérieux capitaine Arcturus. Là, on lui enseigne la magie et la maîtrise d’Ignatius, ce petit démon qu’il a invoqué par erreur, et avec lequel il se lie d’une amitié sans faille.

Mais l’apprentissage est rude et la concurrence mortelle : seuls les élèves les plus talentueux deviendront mages-guerriers et dirigeront les armées d’Hominum afin de défendre les frontières sud du pays, où les Orques tentent de faire basculer l’Empire dans le chaos…

Une fille facile de Louise O’Neill

« Quand tu prononces un mot comme celui-ci, tu ne peux plus faire marche arrière. Fais comme s’il ne s’était rien passé. C’est plus simple comme ça. Plus simple pour toi. »

Emma a dix-huit ans, c’est la plus jolie fille du lycée. En plus d’être belle, elle est pleine d’espoir en l’avenir. Cette nuit-là, il y a une fête, et tous les regards sont braqués sur elle.

Le lendemain matin, ses parents la retrouvent inanimée devant la maison. Elle ne se souvient de rien. Tous les autres sont au courant. Les photographies prises au cours de la soirée circulent sur les réseaux sociaux, dévoilant en détail ce qu’Emma a subi. Les réactions haineuses ne se font pas attendre ; les gens refusent parfois de voir ce qu’ils ont sous les yeux. La vie d’Emma est brisée ? Certains diront qu’elle l’a bien cherché.

Just one of the Royals by Leah & Kate Rooper

Star hockey player Daniel Sacachelli wants only two things: 1) for the Falcons
to win next season, and 2) for his secret — the fact he’s actually the prince of Eldonia — to never make its way to Chicago. But if Daniel keeps avoiding his crown, their family will lose their kingdom forever.

Madison Myong can’t believe that her will-they-or-won’t-they best friend Daniel is
really a prince! He’s always seemed more rebel than royal. But now, he needs to clean up his image, fast. Posing as his long-time girlfriend, Madison accompanies him back to Eldonia, intending to give Daniel a makeover fit for a king.

Only, the more royal Daniel becomes, the more Madison misses her best friend. And if she does her job right, she’ll lose him forever…

 

And you, what have you got this week ?

    Looking forward to your thoughts on Just One of the Royals.

    I’ve been wanting to desperately get a book sub box but the Intl shipping to them are so much that it becomes too expensive and I don’t know if it’s worth it once postage is included. I’ve heard Fairyloot is amazing value.

    Looks like a nice mix of reads. Asking For It looks like it would be a tough read, obviously, and some of the others look fun!
